Quigley Statement on Inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris
Today, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (IL-05) released the following statement after Joe Biden was sworn-in as the 46th President of the United States of America and Kamala Harris was sworn-in as the Vice President of the United States:
“Today is a moment of hope for millions of Americans. After the darkness and division of the past four years, it was an incredible relief to hear President Biden speak above all else of unity.
“As our country faces unprecedented challenges – more than 400,000 Americans have died as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, thousands are out of work, and our nation is deeply divided – President Biden’s inaugural address made it clear that he is prepared to meet this moment with determination, empathy, and true leadership.
“I stand ready to work with President Biden and Vice President Harris to confront the crises before us and begin the difficult work of healing our nation.”
